Whitton was confident a deal had been struck on Thursday, but a last-minute hitch has brought a temporary halt to the move - with Stockley being recalled to the Kassam Stadium.
Stockley impressed Colchester during his two-month loan spell, but Oxford`s decision to demand a sell-on clause prompted Whitton to shelve the deal.
Whitton said: "We had an agreement with Oxford. Their chairman decided at the last-minute that he wanted a sell-on clause.
"Sam was not even playing in Oxford's reserves when we brought him to Layer Road. Why should Oxford get a sell-on clause for us bringing the player on?"
